FFS in Canada? You bet!

We are fortunate to have two specialized surgeons who provide facial feminization procedures for transgender persons in Canada.

In Vancouver, Dr. Cameron Bowman works out of a private clinic and day hospital offering a variety of soft tissue procedures including blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and facial contouring with injectables (silicone, botx, etc.).  He works with Dr. Donald Fitzpatrick.

In Montreal, Dr. Eric Bensimon who is trained in both plastic and craniofacial surgery provides a wide variety of both bone and soft tissue procedures.  He  works with Dr. Pierre Brassard at the Centre Métropolitain de Chirurgie Plastique where they offer combined FFS and GRS options.

Although these procedures are not covered under any provincial health care plan (that is, patients must pay for both the hospital, anaesthitic, and surgical fees), the total cost is significantly less than many US centres. Both surgeons are  professors at major teaching centres, and their cosmetic work is highly regarded.
